Description:

High quality raw fish, in the hands of skilled sushi chef-owner Taka Yamaguchi, is what makes this authentically Japanese strip mall spot a true destination. Simple and classic treatments rule here, although you can get an ornate Americanized roll like the Jumbo Alligator with shrimp tempura, eel and cream cheese. Yet why would you want to when the raw fish is so pristinely fresh, so deftly wrought? Rice, used in nigirizushi and makizushi, is also of ideal temperature and texture.
